I have been working at J. Crew part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great if you love the product with good employee discount, and being proactive and friendly towards customers. Also a good place to get experience with product knowledge and styling because such knowledge is encouraged at all levels of employment in the store.

Cons

Possible negative atmosphere if you have a position competing for individual sales. Possible pressure from some managers to regularly perform on the level of other positions without the same compensation or title.

    I worked at J. Crew part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing discounts. Regular priced items all 30% off, sale stuff is 50%, and every week there's a list of stuff that's 60% off. The employees there are good people too.

    Cons

    On-call shifts. You can't plan to do something on a scheduled on-call shift day because you might work and you'll only know 2 hours ahead of time (of your shift). The hours are sooo inconsistent. Part time I was hoping for ~20 hours, instead some weeks I'd only work 6 hours others only 12. They don't care about part-time employees. Horrible commission too. Only .05%!

    I worked at J. Crew as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people here are great and there is a lot of interaction between departments. The senior executives, for the most part, interact with all levels and show their faces throughout the work week.

    Cons

    If you don't ask, they will not tell. As a freelancer you have to be very pushy in order to be "in the know". Often times freelancers are snubbed.
